Artist's Description

© Christine Till - CT-Graphics A visit to Fortress Königstein, a castle since the mid-13th century, means travelling back to medieval times when castles were attacked and defended, when food had to be prepared fresh because there were no canned ravioli, when clothes were made of linen, when there were knights in their chain mailles, when you were too late because your horse collapsed, when you paid goods with coins of silver or even gold. Originally Koenigstein fortress belonged to the Kings of Bohemia. In 1408 they passed it on to the Dukes of Saxony. Because the fortress was regarded as unconquerable, the Saxon monarchs retreated to it from Wittenberg and later Dresden during times of crisis. They also deposited many works of art from the famous Dresden Zwinger here as well as the state treasure, transported and stored in heavy barrels, at times up to 2 million silver taler, approximately 10.000 coins per barrel.
